This comes from the 16 mm Data Acquisition Camera mounted in the lunar module. The camera had multiple settings; it was set to normal speed for this occasion, and was later set to one frame per second to save film for later footage, including Buzz and Neil setting up the American flag. I was surprised to see this as I didnt even know it existed. It gives a different perspective on some of the most famous footage in history! You can see Buzz reflected in the lander window, and even hear Houston telling him how to set camera. The sequence of events shown is fascinating. You can hear Neil say he is opening the MESA, the Modular Equipment Storage Assembly. The movie camera that took the footage of his actual first step on the Moon was in there (some Moon Hoax twinkies love to ask who took the movie of Neils step, never bothering to, yknow, look it up.

  • If you never lived during the Apollo age, and even if you did, I recommend "From the Earth to the Moon (TV miniseries)" by by Ron Howard, Brian Grazer, Tom Hanks.

    Get the DVD boxed set.

    Ranks right up there with the West wing and X-Files boxed sets, only it's for real.
